      found out, first person said it can be added to account, then order person said no. they seem very relaxed about the offer. first person asked if i wanted sports added, but when i asked if it was on offer he said nothing

      I thought you didn't want the 10 per month HD subs.

      Referring to skypaulusplus post 6
      I presently have an older model Sky+ box and have had it some years, hence it does not have sky anytime on it and has a smaller hard drive than other people that I know who got sky+ later, so although paying the same as them, I am not getting the same service from the box being an older model
      Before I go for this offer, should I be aware of anything regarding the HD boxes?ie.EPGuide, box memory size etc. As I believe there are now three manufacturers of HD boxes.
      As sky terms state they decide which equipment is provided

      Re: Sky+ HD Box is now Half Price

      They all have their good and bad points.

      Thompson box - PSU issues, although I have had mine for a year with zero issues

      Pace box - lipsync issues, Sky are aware and working on a fix - Had mine for two weeks and upgraded the HDD to 1TB - I have the lipsync issue, but am prepared to beta test new technology.

      Samsung box - not a lot in the field - therefore not much to report

      For 75 its a steal

      Newsreader Is the new EPG mentioned released? do both of your boxes handle it OK, if so.
      I agree the price is now a steal.

      Re: Sky+ HD Box is now Half Price

      Unofficially, the new EPG will be delayed. How true or not this is, I have no idea.

      Like anything, its new, and pointless releasing until its mostly right.

      One more question before I order, do the HD boxes still have the RF2 facility to allow you to watch via tv link on another tv?

      Here's the back of the Pace one, I would assume, the Samsung is the same.



      There's a whole load of images here:
